Buddy built a 347 for his Mustang, painted it white. Drove it a lot. Turned a yellowish-tan. I thought it looked good with the Deep Jewel Green car, but he hated what happened to it.

Well suspension is done (not as low as i like yet...), corvette brakes done, and the motor is built and EFI system is on its way and the heads should be back next week from porting.

Now finally with all of that done...i can move onto a custom wheel setup. And lets be honest...most of whats done for these cars are boring as poo. My snowflakes being a prime example, although they were a temporary holdover because i hated the turbines so much. The ideas for the wheels may not be for everyone but i want some statement piece and may have to change up the suspension again if it doesnt settle or fit the new wheels how i want.

Here is the car as of current. Next post is some styles of wheels I'm looking at. May get some hate here lol

Here are some wheel choices (colors are stock and not representing choices id necessarily make). Current snowflakes are siver with gold insert. Id either go polished or brushed and potentially have some gold in there depending on design.

Leaning heavily toward the Atlas.

7k...is that cuz that's what a set costs?

Atlas does have a hint of 'flake.

Lol well it might be about close in price after sizes and everything are done. Tonight im ripping the wheels off and using my tool to measure for exact fitments and offsets.
